I enjoy working with people, helping them to understand their problems, and collaborating with them to design appropriate solutions.

Privately, I provide pro-bono support and development for local arts & music organisations. My interests include music, foreign languages, history, philosophy, maker electronics, personal fabrication, and crime fiction. My aim - be a little more Renaissance, one day at a time.
As a former technical journalist, with experience in education and training, I also have a particular interest in the clear presentation of information, through software, the written word, or the design of info-graphics.
